About the 2010 Nissan Murano
The second generation Murano, introduced as a 2009 model, combines visually distinctive styling, a “mobile suite” interior design, advanced technology and a refined, premium driving feel – creating a modern crossover SUV like no other.
The most striking visual element of the 2010 Murano is once again its body, which imparts a “modern art” feel while still maintaining its distinctive “Murano-ness.” The front end features a bold grille and wide front headlights, a wide hood, powerful wheel arches and an aggressive stance with available 20-inch aluminum-alloy wheels.
Murano’s rear end features a unique rear glass shape for improved visibility, rear air deflector, large rear LED taillights and dual exhaust outlets with chrome finishers. Murano is also offered with an available dual panel power sliding glass moonroof and 2nd row skylight, adding to its open, airy interior feeling.
Inside, Murano lives up to its “mobile suite” design theme with high levels of warmth and luxury. The interior also features available wood and aluminum accents, a 60/40 fold-flat rear seat with power return, heated front and rear seats, power liftgate, rain-sensing front wipers and RearView Monitor.
All 2010 Muranos feature a VQ-series 3.5-liter DOHC V6 rated at 265 horsepower and 248 lb-ft of torque and an advanced Xtronic CVT™ that provides a sporty and smooth driving experience. Murano is available in front-wheel drive or with an Intuitive All-Wheel Drive system, and all Muranos come standard with Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC) with a Traction Control System (TCS) for all-weather confidence.
